Skip to comments.Dana Milbank: Obama vacations as the world burns
Posted on 08/12/2014 8:57:31 AM PDT by Biggirl
President Obama must really be teed off.
Hillary Rodham Clinton, his once-loyal secretary of state and his likeliest successor, has gone rogue, criticizing his foreign policy as too timid.

When he has lost Dana Milbank... I read the article. At the very least, Obama could have taken a less luxurious vacation, or postponed it. He has the gall to say, minutes before he jets off to the Vineyard, that it will take perhaps months if not years in Iraq. Who does that?
Hey now - don’t go to hard on The Won. He’s had this vacation scheduled for months. You know how hard it is to get out of those things???
Rush Limbaugh is talking about it now.
Give Obama a break. After all, he’s never had a real job before. Concepts like “producing quality results”, “working and compromising with others” and “sacrificing personal time for the sake of the job” are things he is wholly unfamiliar with.
I bet he longs for the halcyon days of his prior “jobs”: blabbermouth senator, law firm quota hire and rabble rouser, er, community organizer. There no one expected much from him and praised him for just being him.
Tell that to Rush.
IMHO she was never loyal to Obama. She just needed bonafides for her resume and looked for opportunity to profit by the exposure. She never saw the train wreck coming, never heard the whistle, never saw the flashing lights. Toot!
Hey Dana, your audit letter is in the mail.
as of 11:45 am CDT seems someone took out the Washington post web site.
Milbank is an absolute Hillaroid.
He’s just like Emperor Nero
Oh he’s teed off plenty...what hole is he on now?
Someday perhaps the World will vacation while Obama burns.
Does Nero Obama play the violin while the world burns?
Hillary Clinton saying Obama’s Foreign Policy was too timid, just argues that she failed to persuade the one person she needed to - Obama himself. And Obama failed to heed the one person he’d put into the position to advance his foreign policy - Hillary Clinton. A total circular firing squad of amateurs.
If all things were equal, the Progressives would have given President Bush the same leeway on vacations they now give President Obama(’the office of President is where ever the President is’). Rational, reasonable people would agree.
Interesting that now many of the comments I see are that the vacation home in Martha’s Vineyard is ‘better equipped for the Office’ than Prairie Chapel Ranch. Hilarious!
Hillary was baraq’s sec of state.
She is a powerful, smart woman. Just ask their media.
She was part of the inner circle that constructed baraq’s foreign policy. Really I would bet that all the decisions were hers anyway since all baraq does is golf and raise money. Also, how many times did baraq meet with his foreign policy experts? Once? Maybe twice?
This is kind of funny to see Hillary blame her boss when he was totally disengaged from the whole process.
Poor BO. Nobody ‘preciating how hard presidenting be.
